Carson Wentz: I’ll find any way I can to help Patrick Mahomes | PFT

Carson Wentz fully moved into his backup era when he signed with the Rams last year and he’ll be the No. 2 behind another Super Bowl winner this season.

Wentz signed with the Chiefs earlier this year, which puts him on a team looking for a third straight title with the league’s best quarterback at the helm. Given that status, Patrick Mahomes isn’t a player who would seem to be in need of much assistance but Wentz vowed to find ways to boost his teammate this season.

“I’ll find a way to help him whatever way I can, whether that’s off the field, on the field, whatever,” Wentz said, via Adam Teicher of



Clickbait headlines are getting out of control | PFT

AI might be able to do many things, but the art of coming up with clickbait headlines is uniquely human.

And it’s getting worse.

The term often gets misapplied. For every link that shows up on social media or in search engines, the outlet that posted it hopes someone will click on it. But there’s a difference between enticing engagement through transparency and candor and luring folks to click on an article by making it seem like something it isn’t.

That’s clickbait. The link to the article is presented in a way that’s misleading or confusing. The tipping point for me came this morning, when I saw this ridiculous headline from “Steelers Intentionally Cut Super Bowl Winning QB.”




3 potential Chiefs trade candidates entering 2024 training camp | Clutch Points

Patrick Mahomes has done pretty well the last two seasons despite working with marginal wide receivers. But in 2024, Mahomes may get back closer to what he had when Tyreek Hill wore Kansas City Chiefs red. And the position improvements mean a pair of wideouts could be trade candidates entering the 2024 training camp.

With a deep receiving group, the Chiefs could shore up other areas by entertaining offers for Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore. A third trade candidate comes from the tight end position, where Irv Smith Jr. could be on the block.




ESPN Analyst: No Debate with Cowboys Needed, the Chiefs Are America’s Team | Sports Illustrated

This season, the Kansas City Chiefs will attempt to be the first team in NFL history to three-peat, history the Chiefs are able to chase after completing back-to-back championship runs over the last two years. Even with KC’s dynastic run, the title of “America’s team” continues to default to the Dallas Cowboys. One analyst thinks it’s time for Dallas to pass the crown.

Discussing the evergreen topic of the Cowboys’ status as “America’s team” and if Dallas should retain the title, Courtney Cronin of ESPN made KC’s case on “First Take.”

“I think it’s only fair, since Stephen A. [Smith] is not here, that the Cowboy trolling can continue with this question,” Cronin said. “And the answer is ‘absolutely not,’ and they haven’t been America’s team since the last time they won a Super Bowl. You know who ‘America’s team’ is? The Kansas City Chiefs. In an era that has been defined by often-forced parity, you’ve got a dynasty. We don’t have dynasties in the NFL all that often anymore. The Cowboys were that back in the ’90s, back when I was a toddler not even watching the NFL yet. We saw it before the Kansas City Chiefs with the New England Patriots. And we haven’t seen it since.”




Chiefs, Chargers Favorites To Land Former Third-Round Pick | Last Word On Sports

Chiefs, Chargers Favorites To Land Former Third-Round Pick


The Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers are favorites to land former third-round pick, Dyami Brown. According to a report, the Commanders may be ready to unload on the wideout that would bring Brandon Aiyuk from the 49ers. However, it doesn’t seem likely that would happen since San Francisco isn’t looking to trade either Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel. The safe decision may be to put Brown on the trade block to see which team would best fit him and that would be the Chiefs or the Chargers in this scenario.

Brown isn’t a needle-mover after three underwhelming seasons with the Commanders but the North Carolina product can still produce. He has specific traits like blocking aggression and deep speed that could translate to any offense that needs rotational depth. Brown still has upside for the Commanders but it’s safe to assume his time is almost up and it shouldn’t surprise anyone if the team trades him. He’s been showing glimpses of becoming a big-play threat but nothing special to change the landscape of a team’s offense so this is one to watch.



Isiah Pacheco Ranked Outside of Top 10 RBs in Survey of League Employees | Sports Illustrated

Over the past couple of seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs’ running back room has developed a very clear hierarchy at the top. Isiah Pacheco leads the way, then everyone else falls in place behind him.

Despite Pacheco’s emergence as a top back in Kansas City, not everyone is convinced that he’s a top back in the NFL. In a recent survey, ESPN took into account feedback from league executives, coaches and scouts along with analyst Matt Bowen’s own context. The outlet is doing so for multiple positions over the next week-plus.

For running backs, Pacheco didn’t receive enough top-10 votes to make the cut. With that said, one scout from the opposing conference did praise the Chiefs standout for various aspects of his game. Jeremy Fowler documented the intel.




After meeting with Chiefs, Royals, top lawmaker says another Jackson County vote likely | KC Star via Yahoo Sports

A top Missouri lawmaker expects Jackson County residents to vote again on a stadium tax for the Kansas City Chiefs or Royals after meeting on Monday with management of both teams.

House Majority Leader Jonathan Patterson, a Lee’s Summit Republican, told The Star that while he expects another vote to occur, it’s unclear whether it will include both teams or when the vote will happen.

“I do think before all this is said and done, Jackson County is going to have another vote,” said Patterson, the presumptive next House speaker.



… have a great day, AG!

Well, that’s because it’s currently happening

And to think, these blowhards are paid big bucks for observations such as that.

I’m in the wrong line of work.

Also, thank you to Sports Illustrated for telling us what we already know – that the Kansas City Chiefs are America’s Team (and have been for some time now).

And it’s not even KCC News, who, if they wrote that we won’t notice since it was buried in all the other horrible writing

They need to separate the Royals from the Chiefs with regards to the next time they ask for a vote on the matter.

That would make sense, except the complex serves them both. It would probably be easier to pass two smaller taxes than one larger one, because most people are math deprived.
